Just fresh vegetables



Here is the final product, served along side of my husband’s “famous saucy potatoes” and barbecued pork ribs from Granzin’s.

One of my favorite things about spring/summer is having a garden that we can get fresh homegrown vegetables from.

I love making dinners with fresh veggies, mainly because my boys will actually eat them!

We have always loved coming up with new ways to cook our fresh veggies or finding ways to preserve them. This year I have made 18 jars of homemade pickles with the overload of cucumbers that we’ve had and we’ve made six jars of pickled okra, so far.

Here is a recipe that we make when we have an abundance of fresh squash, zuchinni and cherry tomatoes. I truly hope that y’all enjoy it as much as my family and I do.

Just simply squash

• 4-5 medium yellow squash (I usually use a couple of zuchinni as well), sliced into rings

• 4-5 green onions, sliced

• 1/2-1 lb. of cherry tomatoes, cut into halves

• olive oil

• garlic salt and pepper to taste

After slicing your squash, tomatoes and green onions, throw it all in a large skillet. Drizzle some olive oil over it and season it with the garlic salt and pepper and start sautéing. We like ours to be a little firm, not crisp, but not squishy. You can really make this recipe yours by simply putting your own twist on it!

It makes for a nice refreshing side dish to go along with your favorite main course.
